Anions are atoms that have gained electrons and are therefore negative in charge. They are common among nonmetals. The charges of these ions are written with numbers that followed by a plus or minus sign.
Nonmetals form anions.
Ionic Bonds (nonmetals and metals, or canions and anions), Covalent Bonds (nonmetals/anions), and Molecular bonds.
No, some non metals as Boron and Silicon do not form the anions , but it is still true that most of the non metals usually form anions.
Nonmetals gain electrons in chemical reactions.
Nonmetals generally form negatively charged anions.
Nonmetals form generally anions.
Metals loss electrons and become cations; nonmetals gain electrons and become anions.
Nonmetals tend to form anions (negatively charged) because they gain electrons from the metals.
Metals lose electrons, making them positive cations. Nonmetals gain electrons, making them negative anions.
Metals tend to form cations while nonmetals tend to form anions.
Nonmetals generally are more electronegative than metals, meaning that they have a stronger pull on their electrons - thus when they form ions, metals give up electrons (forming cations) and nonmetals take up electrons (forming anions).
Nonmetals can form anions (negative ions).
These elements become anions, negative charged ions.
Atoms of non-metals tend to gain electrons and become anions.
Metals form cations, nonmetals form anions.
No: Anions of nonmetals end in the suffix -ide, but no element name ends in this group of letters.
- many nonmetals are gaseous or liquids- densities are not high- hardness of solid elements is not high- nonmetals form frequently anions- nonmetals form frequently compounds with covalent bonds

Yes. Metals form cations and nonmetals form anions.
